not been getting answers. paula broadwell was a reservist in the military intelligence, army military intelligence, a lt. colonel, she did have clearance at one point to certainly view classified information, not necessarily to take it home, but she could review it. she is not a mobilized army reservist. it is not clear if she still has that clearance if she is not mobilized. the am avoided answering the questioning about whether she could face charges for the extramarital affair under the uniform code of military justice because it is not dealer -- clear if she was active. the f.b.i. has no evidence that david petraeus provided classified documents to her. >>shepard: the other woman, general petraeus we learned, came to the aid of the tampa socialite jill kelley's twin sister, natalie. >>reporter: both of these sisters, they are twins, faced pretty steep debt and natalie was also involved in a very sticky custody battle and both of these sisters cultivated relationships with powerful men in washington and generals who were rising stars at central command. natalie was involved in a cu

ended and then we hear the f.b.i. was going back to broadwell's house, paula broadwell's house, petraeus' mistress in north carolina. we don't know what that is all about. then we hear shortly after that, that general john allen, the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, who was here in washington preparing for his confirmation hearings for his next job at the supreme allied commanderrer in europe, the confirmation hearings are on hold and he is now implicated in this controversy, because of 30,000 pages of e-mails to jill kelly, who is the woman who launched this investigation. so it really keeps unraveling. it's like an onion you keep rolling back. we also need to look at the contentious custody battle that jill kelly's sister was involved in. we now understand that petraeus and allen both wrote letters o, asking the judge to show leniency to kelly's sister. was there undue influence used by the two men for these wome women? and was there, were there any laws broken? it just keeps getting, it's not as simple as the simple sexual affair at this point. >> eric: jennifer griffin, thank you f

this women, petraeus's biographer and ex-mistress, paula broadwell. bill: got all that? martha: i think so, you need a pen. catherine herridge is live in d.c.. tell us where we are today on the investigation. where is it. >> reporter: thank you, bill and good morning. so far virtually every publicly threat in the case leads back to jill kelly, a woman described as this unpaid social liaison for the military in tampa, florida. this morning it is alleged the commander of international forces in afghanistan, or isaf, general john allen, sent between 20 and 30,000 pages to kelly. e-mail traffic described as potentially inappropriate nature. it was jill kelly who alert ad fbi agent what she believed were harassing e-mails from the paula broadwell, the biographer and mistress of general david petraeus. it was investigation of kelly's complaints that ultimately forced resignation of general petraeus last week. spokesman george little gave a brief statement on general allen's status. >> while this matter is under investigation and before the facts are determined, general allen will remain commande
had an affair with paula broadwell. we know the fbi was aware of the affair for months part of an investigation ghan with threatening e-mails ladies and gentlemenedly sent by broadwell tol a petraeus family friend joe kelly a woman who is not romantically link to do petraeus. some are questioning why the president accepted the resignation. >> are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't know ynotify before? >> yes. this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told there is a way to do it that is just to inform the chair and vice-chairman of both committees to -- this has happened before not with precise same things, but none of the four of us that ever breached that confidentiality. >> fbi director petraeus was set to testify before congress what the cia knew about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. now that he has resigned they will brief congress on the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three americans. some members of congress would like to see them testify about what he knew about benghazi. >> we
says he never gave any classified material to his biographer and mistress, paula broadwell. that's the central question in this case, as you probably know. prosecutors are trying to determine whether to charge paula broadwell with a crime because the fbi is investigating whether the author and petraeus mistress stored military documents including classified material at her home. according to hln's kyra philips, headline news they used to call it, the cnn network, general petraeus says the timing of the scandal had nothing to do with the deadly attack in benghazi. she spoke to him repeatedly, and he tells her that he always planned to testify and that he, quote, felt fortunate to have a wife who is farber than he deserves -- far be -- far better than he deserves. it just gets weirder every day. >> one small part of the story is unraveling a bit. you recall jill kelly, the socially yea son at the air force base, when she started receiving these allegedly harassing e-mails from petraeus' mistress went to a friend, an fbi agent. that friend is frederick humphreys. it is reported that
or exposed about the affair that he was having with paula broadwell. there are so many more questions to why he would say this it was the videotape. and conveniently now that's officially his testimony because if he's not called to testify under oath, it will be left that that was his testimony. >> steve: at that point in september 14 when he went up to capitol hill, according to the "washington post" yesterday, he truly believed that he would survive it. he knew that's being investigated, but he figured they would keep that quiet. bill crystal made the point that perhaps what he was doing is he felt that he should probably go ahead with, in the interest of national security, i'm not going to spill all the beans and instead, what i'll do is i will go along with a politically acceptable explanation of the administration. >> brian: i talked to somebody close to him the day, because i was trying to put this together just for my own, to be able to talk about it, and i said, is this true that c.i.a. director petraeus said what he said? he said, all i can tell u.s. when i talked to him that mornin
, did gen. petraeus mysteries, paula broadwell, expose classified information about the benghazi attack? i should tell you that cnn is now reporting that the fbi is at the broadwell house in north carolina right now. that being reported by cnn. fox news national security correspondent, jennifer griffin, is here with the latest. jennifer. >> it's interesting the fbi is there, greta, because they had already check her computer, her home computer. so it's interesting that they are look for more apparently. so this is an investigation that led to the downfall of petraeus comes at a time that hill members are returning to town and we are hoping to get some answer was benghazi from petraeus himself. and in closed briefings this thursday. that's not going to happen. close family friends say petraeus is deeply embarrassed and devastated by the sex scandal. further in the process of its investigation the fbi found classified documents on broadwell's computer. remember she spent a year in afghanistan with him and has a security clearance as a reserve military intelligence officer. those documents
that she is biographer paula broadwell. during that process her name came up. and all of this information coming to light on just days before the hearing on benghazi, libya terrorist attack. former cia director david petraeus was set to testify. now he has not on the list. it has law makers questioning. peter king said testimony from petraeus is essential to understanding what went wrong in benghazi. he was on fox news earlier today. >> i was not told and the chairman of the intelligence committee was supposed to be told. my understanding they were not told about it and the fib fub said it didn't involve terrorism or intelligence. >> and molly what was the fbi looking at. >> harris, the fbi discovered the bigrapy paula broadwell had acess to the personal e-mail account and they monitored his e-mail although he was not under investigation . but the agents were scured of a security breach or broadwell was stalking nem and after that they discovered the affair. >> petraeus stepped down and senator fine stine is not happy about it she said this is an enormous loss for our country and intellig
a report-- the only paula broadwell question i have -- two of them, actually. was this cia annex a detention, interrogation site as she suggested? she seemed confident when she said it. >> well, i tell you, everything you said about general petraeus is true. we were losing in iraq, he turned it around. he got us back on good footing in afghanistan that i think the president has made poor decisions on iraq and afghanistan, in spite of great military leadership. but general petraeus supposedly told the house intelligence and senate intelligence committee a couple of days after the attack, he thought it was the result of a radio. he needs to testify. secretary clinton needs to testify. august 15, ambassador stevens sent a cable from libya to the state department, to secretary clinton saying, we have identified 10 militia groups associated with al qaeda in benghazi, they are all over the place. if there is a coordinated attack, we can't defend the consulate. so she needs to account for why she did not grant the security request. we need to hear from all of these people. the way the c
